Ginger in Sherry

"This is more of a technique than a recipe. If you have trouble finding fresh ginger, if it goes bad before you use it all or if you just fancy having a lovely ginger-flavoured sherry to cook with then this is for you. For this recipe you want a fino sherry, not any of the sweeter or aged kinds."

Ready In:
1 cup ginger in sherry




  • Cut the ginger into 2-3 pieces of a few inches each.
  • Use a spoon to scrape the peel off the ginger.
  • You can also do this as you pull out pieces of ginger to cook with but I find it easier to do beforehand.
  • Put the ginger and sherry in a non-metallic container with a tight cover.
  • Store in the fridge for up to three months.
  • You can use the sherry for cooking and top it up as required.

This is a picture of me and my husband in Portugal, climbing up above the clouds with our bikes. Right now we are travelling around the world on our bicycles, so I only pop onto Zaar occasionally, when internet connections and time allow me to. If I don't reply to a message about one of my recipes, now you know why! Our trip may take several years so if it's urgent, it's probably better for you to post in the forums ;) Good food is really important to me -- I am happy to pay extra for food that I feel is produced in a sustainable and ethical way and always try to eat using seasonal produce. When we were in the UK we rarely shopped at supermarkets, trying instead to favour small producers, although we were very lucky in that we lived in London and there was lots of choice. We also were fortunate enough to have a weekly organic veg box delivered to our door, filled with so many lovely vegetables for very little money. It really opened my horizons in terms of the variety of vegetables I eat. If you're in the UK, check out Riverford for a box supplier as they're amazing! When I'm not eating I love to take pictures and travel with my husband. <img src="">
